Back to the Future Day with GB911

Back in 2009, we wrote a scene for Ghostbustin' 911 in which the Twin Cities Ghostbusters ran into Doc Brown on a case. A friend loaned us his DeLorean time machine, and we brought on a guest Director (Brian Forrest) to help us in planning one of our most ambitious scenes. The result is a child of the 80's dream come to life when Ghostbusters meets Back to the Future!

 

Watch the scene below, & click here to watch more exclusive content.

It's your normal car, on the BIG STAGE!

 

Join 93X's Josh, Nick and Ali for the 2nd Annual Half-Assed Morning Show “Average Joe Car Show.” The HAMS is yet again assembling the largest collection of regular-guy, everyday cars of the Brotherhood.

 

SHOW OFF the fast-food grease stains. SHARE the ambiance of decades of flatulence. And BRAG about how your day-to-day vehicle goes from 0 to 60… occasionally.

 

Classics, supercars, and motorcycles are welcome too…. but this event specifically pays respect to the rusted 1987 Dodge Grand Caravan that (barely) makes it to work and back each day.

 

It happens Saturday, September 19 from 2pm – 5pm in the parking lot at the Myth in Maplewood. Around 75 cars will be selected to participate in this year’s show, & the ECTO-1D will be one of the more NON-average vehicles on hand.

 

For more details, check out our events calendar.

 

Go to 93x.com for more info on the event & to enter your own car. Don't worry if it's a clunker. Seriously, in this show...the clunkier, the better!

If you tried to view our ECTO-1D page in the past, you were most likely met with a "Page coming soon" message. Well not any more!

 

We would like to announce that our information page on our 1963 Cadillac Ambulance ECTO replica is now live! We wanted to include a page to tell the story of how the Twin Cities Ghostbusters found & built their new ride. This new page includes:

 

  • A breif history of how she went from being the only ambulance/hearse in service in a small Virginia town to a lean, mean ghostbustin' machine.

  • Photos of the build chronicling pre-build, the build itself, & post-build.

  • Photos and breif descriptions of the individual parts that went into turning her into an ECTO replica. And more.

 

Our goal in creating this page is not just to showcase the car, but to aid Ghostbusters fans & prop builders looking to make their own ECTO replica. If you are putting together one of your own, please contact us with any questions you might have & we'd be happy to help in any way we can.

 

Click here to visit the ECTO-1D page, & enjoy.

 

To see the car in person, visit our events calendar.

High Res Episodes Now Online

To go along with the launch of our new website, we have uploaded high res video files of all seven existing episodes of Ghostbustin' 911 on our YouTube channel. Watch the Twin Cities Ghostbusters cause explosions, burn down houses, and generally screw things up in glorious high resolution!

 

You've seen our show, but you haven't 'SEEN' it yet! A while back we had to comply with YouTube's very limited uploading parameters. We were forced to compress our show and break each episode up. But now, for the first time ever, you can see all of our episodes uninterrupted and in high resolution, the way we intended them to be seen! Now you can experience all the details that you missed in the first uploads. Did you know there are a few Easter eggs throughout our series that were never able to be seen before now? Watch our series again and get to know the REAL Ghostbustin' 911 crew. We'll take you on an uninterrupted ride along as a camera crew follows around the Twin Cities franchise Ghostbusters. Be sure to watch it on your HD television or home theater setup to experience what it's like to be a real Ghostbuster.

 

Be sure to check out the video page of our new and improved website. Catch all of your favorite episodes and video blogs in one place. You can also see our list of events around town and have a chance to get your photo taken with the cast and crew of Ghostbustin' 911 at an upcoming event. And remember, 'We're Ready to Believe You!'
